Theme: Reality

In No Stone I Found a God

This is my father
He broke stones lifelong

For giving education to me
In summer vacations,
I too went to the quarry
And prayed to a stone god
Beside our thatched hut 
For good grades.

One day I asked my father
Why he didn’t worship
Any stone god. He asked:
'Which God? Of that stone?
No! I don’t like to do it at all.
You know I broke stones

Enough to make a mountain
But in no stone I found a God'

And from that moment
I quit idolatry forever.

Comment Radha, you always encourage me. Words fail me to thank you.
You are a great soul. Also I am too much indebted to Aparna Tai.
